Eggshells and Honey


Dear G.I.T. Newsletter readers,

in this issue of the newsletter, I would like to present you an interesting study done by Researchers of the Helmholtz Institute in Ulm, Germany. They have looked into the possibility to use ground up eggshell as a material for Lithium ion batteries. Find the details for this story here.

Honey is one of the universally liked food items around the world. This makes it also a target for food fraud. I would like to draw your attention to two articles on food fraud. The first one shows how the European food safety organizations work together to create a network for detecting food fraud within the EU. The second article gives you an overview on the analytical methods used to verify that the product sold as honey is unadulterated.

Best regards,
Dr. Martin Graf-Utzmann
